I'm very lucky that I have a horse loving mom with enough money to be able to pay for my lessons. I, however, want to take some extra lessons every week this year. So after I get my license I'm going to see if I can get a job somewhere. Even if I just paid off my lessons by doing work around the stable would be fine. But the stable I want to take lessons at is only 15 minutes away :)

I am a working student for my trainer. It doesn't pay all of it (board, show fees, hauling fees, trainer rides ,lessons) but it pays the majority of it.

My parents pay for my lessons because that is the only thing I do. I pay for anything else "horsey" with my own money. Ask if you could work there in return for lessons or put up flyers for odd jobs you are willing to do.

There's a lady that I'd like to take lessons from who's $45 for a lesson, but even that is a struggle for me. I've talked her student into giving me lessons for $15 a lesson I figured I'd be getting the same education for a much cheaper price, and I'm confident that her student will have plenty to teach me, at least for a while. I'm pretty happy about it!

I have several different trainers. My first trainer was my best friend and she gave me free h/j lessons, the next trainer I had I mainly worked off lessons by cleaning tack and doing other jobs for himand my mom also helped pay for them when she could and I think his lessons were about $35, the following trainer I had was $45 for an hour private and I paid for those by housesitting animals while their owners were out of town, and my current trainer her private hour lessons are $20 and I pay for them by still housesitting but I also have a real job to help with them as well.

I just started riding after a 5 year break so I can barely do 30min let alone an hour lesson! I will just have to cut back on my Timmies and start bringing my lunch to work to pay for them when I'm ready.

Right now I'm taking dressage lessons from a lady that wants to learn reining so we are kind of swapping if that makes sense.

My dad isn't very supportive of my riding, but my mum said: "I'll pay, because it's something you absoloutely love" which it is.
I have private lessons, so its more expensive, and I ride evry 2 weeks. BUUTTT!! My mom said that after my brothers math tuition stops, I can go every week!
So yeah that's how I pay, when I am a year or two older, I'm going to write an advertisment for myself, seeing if I can work, in exchange for rides :)

I have a job, so I pay for my own lesson. Starting next payday (next Friday) I'm going to pay the for the full month money.... (130 for a whole month) It seems WAYYY cheaper then what I am doing "paying 35 each lesson...." Cause then I have to budget the money... I'm a girl who LOVES to spend her money on stupid things. I actually had to call my parents to ask for money to pay for my horse/lessons cause I spend it already.... So budgeting isn't in my vocab. But, I am learning.
